I'm having a problem with running a .jar from an .exe from a DVD for my boss.
It seems that when I try to extract the .exe file to the PC, I get an error message that says I can't run the .jar file and doesn't let me extract anything.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Java but no luck.

Any ideas?
He's running windows 7 32-bit

Post the exact error message, please.


What utility are you using in your effort to extract/open said file?
